School-Community Conflict: Discipline.
Wright, Darrell
Adoption by the local school board of a new student discipline and conduct code required by the state department of education generated conflict in a rural community around the values inherent in the discipline of young people. Discipline was narrowly defined by community members in terms of establishment of order, adult control, and student acquiescence. The issue was the extent to which youth should and could be punished by local school officials. Background information is supplied on the community and on the local ministerial association that focused the opposition to the adoption of the code. Past occurrences are analyzed and possible social and political impacts resulting from the lack of conflict resolution are examined in terms of current community conflict theory. (Author/MLF)
